The Weather Station at Jackson Bottom
The weather station at the Preserve continuously measures wind speed and direction, temperature, barometric pressure, rainfall, relative humidity and solar radiation. Other parameters such as heat index, wind chill and evapotranspiration are calculated from the measured data. Current weather conditions can be viewed on this web site. Graphs of several weather parameters can also be viewed.
Rainfall and other weather data have been recorded at the Preserve since 2002, when our weather station (Capricorn 2000, manufactured by Columbia Weather Systems) was deployed.
